Melissa DeRosa, a former top aide to disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is splitting from her husband, The Post has learned.
DeRosa and spouse Matthew Wing — who met while working side-by-side in Cuomo’s communications office — are getting divorced and selling their Brooklyn Heights apartment, sources close to them said Friday.
“They simply grew apart, and they have been living apart for a year,” a friend said.
“Their marriage broke down over time, and it was exacerbated during COVID, when they wound up in separate places. … Melissa spent time in Albany, and Matt works for Uber and spent some time in San Francisco,” the source said.
The pair’s swank, two-bedroom duplex in a Pierrepont Street brownstone is set to hit the market with an asking price of $2.59 million.
The couple bought the place for $2.2 million shortly after they married in 2016.
“The Brooklyn house was often empty. But they remain friends,” the source added.
DeRosa and Wing don’t have any kids, but in 2019 she tweeted a photo of him preparing a fertility shot so she could freeze her eggs for in vitro fertilization later.
Wing declined to comment, and DeRosa didn’t return a message from The Post.
Her lawyer, Robert S. Cohen — whose clients have included Melinda Gates, Ivana Trump and the late “Sopranos” actor James Gandolfini — declined to comment.
